The first set is true money. All time favorites of mine being the jack a roe, minglewood, FOTD, promised land (smokin), sugar > scarlet which contains a perfect transition, a must hear. The ending SSDD is also really well performed. The bird song and eyes are also pretty good versions, the bird song likely being a bit better.

Though if I could've gone to only one of the shows, this one would be last on the list compared to the former and latter shows. Check those out.

The best thing about Alpine for me was how the whole three show run seemed to flow together...being there, one could not imagine missing any of it because it all seemed to be an essential part of a whole. There were a few runs I attended that seemed like that for me: Philly Fall 89, McNichols Arena 12/90, Landover Md Spring 90 come to mind.

Totally agree on the Big Mac shows from 12/90! the split DS was a perfect example, but boy was it freakin COLD-lol.

Hell yeah it was cold, and I was homeless for those shows...I flew out on one of those buy one-get one plane ticket deals and the person I spit them with basically kicked me out of her house when I hit on her the first day. Wound up with no cash, nothing to trade, and nowhere to stay but fortunately a super nice group of freaks on a huge purple school bus took pity on me and let me stay in their motel room (twenty stinky hairy heads in a tiny motel room)so I didn't freeze to death. I'll never forget being curled up on the floor in the middle of the night, and some lovely dreadlocked angel covering me with a blanket like a mommy caring for her child. It's the little moments that stick with you.

Fun concerts too...one of the only times I saw To Lay Me Down live...if not the only time.
